The globus-job-manager program is a servivce which starts and controls GRAM jobs which are executed by a local resource management system, such as LSF or Condor. The globus-job-manager program is typically started by the globus-gatekeeper program and not directly by a user. It runs until all jobs it is managing have terminated or its delegated credentials have expired.
Typically, users interact with the globus-job-manager program via client applications such as globusrun, globus-job-submit, or tools such as CoG jglobus or Condor-G.
The full set of command-line options to globus-job-manager consists of:
Display a help message to standard error and exit
- -type LRM
Execute jobs using the local resource manager named LRM.
- -conf CONFIG_PATH
Read additional command-line arguments from the file CONFIG_PATH. If present, this must be the first command-line argument to the globus-job-manager program.
-globus-host-manufacturer MANUFACTURER:: Indicate the manufacturer of the system which the jobs will execute on. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_HOST_MANUFACTURER) RSL substitution to MANUFACTURER
- -globus-host-cputype CPUTYPE
Indicate the CPU type of the system which the jobs will execute on. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_HOST_CPUTYPE) RSL substitution to CPUTYPE
- -globus-host-osname OSNAME
Indicate the operating system type of the system which the jobs will execute on. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_HOST_OSNAME) RSL substitution to OSNAME
- -globus-host-osversion OSVERSION
Indicate the operating system version of the system which the jobs will execute on. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_HOST_OSVERSION) RSL substitution to OSVERSION
- -globus-gatekeeper-host HOST
Indicate the host name of the machine which the job was submitted to. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_GATEKEEPER_HOST) RSL substitution to HOST
- -globus-gatekeeper-port PORT
Indicate the TCP port number of gatekeeper to which jobs are submitted to. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_GATEKEEPER_PORT) RSL substitution to PORT
- -globus-gatekeeper-subject SUBJECT
Indicate the X.509 identity of the gatekeeper to which jobs are submitted to. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_GATEKEEPER_SUBJECT) RSL substitution to SUBJECT
- -home GLOBUS_LOCATION
Indicate the path where the Globus Toolkit(r) is installed on the service node. This is used by the job manager to locate its support and configuration files.
- -target-globus-location TARGET_GLOBUS_LOCATION
Indicate the path where the Globus Toolkit(r) is installed on the execution host. If this is omitted, the value specified as a parameter to -home is used. This parameter sets the value of the $(GLOBUS_LOCATION) RSL substitution to TARGET_GLOBUS_LOCATION
- -history HISTORY_DIRECTORY
Configure the job manager to write job history files to HISTORY_DIRECTORY. These files are described in the Files section below.
- -scratch-dir-base SCRATCH_DIRECTORY
Configure the job manager to use SCRATCH_DIRECTORY as the default scratch directory root if a relative path is specified in the job RSL’s scratch_dir attribute.
Configure the job manager to write log messages via syslog. Logging is further controlled by the argument to the -log-levels parameter described below.
- -log-pattern PATTERN
Configure the job manager to write log messages to files named by the string PATTERN. The PATTERN string may contain job-independent RSL substitutions such as $(HOME), $(LOGNAME), etc, as well as the special RSL substition $(DATE) which will be resolved at log time to the date in YYYYMMDD form.
- -stdio-log LOG_DIRECTORY
Configure the job manager to write log messages to files in the LOG_DIRECTORY directory. This is a backward-compatible parameter, equivalent to '-log-pattern '.
- -log-levels LEVELS
Configure the job manager to write log messages of certain levels to syslog and/or log files. The available log levels are FATAL, ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG, and TRACE. Multiple values can be combined with the | character. The default value of logging when enabled is FATAL|ERROR.
- -state-file-dir STATE_DIRECTORY
Configure the job manager to write state files to STATE_DIRECTORY. If not specified, the job manager uses the default of $GLOBUS_LOCATION/tmp/gram_job_state/. This directory must be writable by all users and be on a file system which supports POSIX advisory file locks. . This directory must be writable by all users and be on a file system which supports POSIX advisory file locks.
- -globus-tcp-port-range PORT_RANGE
Configure the job manager to restrict its TCP/IP communication to use ports in the range described by PORT_RANGE. This value is also made available in the job environment via the GLOBUS_TCP_PORT_RANGE environment variable.
- -globus-tcp-source-range SOURCE_RANGE
Configure the job manager to restrict its TCP/IP communication to use source ports in the range described by SOURCE_RANGE. This value is also made available in the job environment via the GLOBUS_TCP_SOURCE_RANGE environment variable.
- -x509-cert-dir TRUSTED_CERTIFICATE_DIRECTORY
Configure the job manager to search TRUSTED_CERTIFICATE_DIRECTORY for its list of trusted CA certificates and their signing policies. This value is also made available in the job environment via the X509_CERT_DIR environment variable.
- -cache-location GASS_CACHE_DIRECTORY
Configure the job manager to use the path GASS_CACHE_DIRECTORY for its temporary GASS-cache files. This value is also made available in the job environment via the GLOBUS_GASS_CACHE_DEFAULT environment variable.
Configure the job manager to assume it is using Kerberos for authentication instead of X.509 certificates. This disables some certificate-specific processing in the job manager.
- -extra-envvars VAR=VAL,...
Configure the job manager to define a set of environment variables in the job environment beyond those defined in the base job environment. The format of the parameter to this argument is a comma-separated sequence of VAR=VAL pairs, where VAR is the variable name and VAL is the variable’s value. If the value is not specified, then the value of the variable in the job manager’s environment is used. This option may be present multiple times on the command-line or the job manager configuration file to append multiple environment settings.
- -seg-module SEG_MODULE
Configure the job manager to use the schedule event generator module named by SEG_MODULE to detect job state changes events from the local resource manager, in place of the less efficient polling operations used in GT2. To use this, one instance of the globus-job-manager-event-generator must be running to process events for the LRM into a generic format that the job manager can parse.
- -audit-directory AUDIT_DIRECTORY
Configure the job manager to write audit records to the directory named by AUDIT_DIRECTORY. This records can be loaded into a database using the globus-gram-audit program.
- -globus-toolkit-version TOOLKIT_VERSION
Configure the job manager to use TOOLKIT_VERSION as the version for audit and usage stats records.
- -service-tag SERVICE_TAG
Configure the job manager to use SERVICE_TAG as a unique identifier to allow multiple GRAM instances to use the same job state directories without interfering with each other’s jobs. If not set, the value untagged will be used.
Configure the job manager to disable file streaming. This is propagated to the LRM script interface but has no effect in GRAM5.
Disable sending of any usage stats data, even if -usagestats-targets is present in the configuration.
- -usagestats-targets TARGET
Send usage packets to a data collection service for analysis. The TARGET string consists of a comma-separated list of HOST:PORT combinations, each contaiing an optional list of data to send. See Usage Stats Packets for more information about the tags. Special tag strings of all (which enables all tags) and default may be used, or a sequence of characters for the various tags. If this option is not present in the configuration, then the default of usage-stats.globus.org:4810 is used.
- -condor-arch ARCH
Set the architecture specification for condor jobs to be ARCH in job classified ads generated by the GRAM5 codnor LRM script. This is required for the condor LRM but ignored for all others.
- -condor-os OS
Set the operating system specification for condor jobs to be OS in job classified ads generated by the GRAM5 codnor LRM script. This is required for the condor LRM but ignored for all others.
